Hi All,


Storms brewing at Gibraltar Range, NE NSW, and my neck hurts from looking
for Needletails & Forktails. No sign yet, but I'd urge all with flexible
necks to keep an eye on the skies, Michael Tarburton is doing a great job of
monitoring these species. There is environmental "stuff" going on in their
breeding grounds which we can all help monitor.

I'll post when I get a sighting, and I'm also keeping notes for Mike & his
valuable project. 


Sacred Kingfishers have moved in this week, and Cicadabird has started
calling regularly. Alan McBride quite rightly mentioned to me that they
arrive a few weeks before they start calling, this is also my experience.

I have posted a short article on the astounding dawn chorus of birdsong
happening here now .

Cheers & happy birding!
